Sholing 0-2 Slimbridge

Boatmen were second best all over the pitch in a very disappointing performance as we comfortably beaten by Slimbridge. Visiting keeper barely had a save to make and the Swans took the lead on 36 mins with a cross from the left knocked in at the far post. They hit the upright after the restart and won a penalty on 58 mins that Gosney saved.  That should have boosted our display, but it didn't and it was no surprise when Slimbridge doubled their lead on 74 mins with another left sided cross converted - Match Report & Photos

Home game guidance for fans

In line with the latest Government instructions, face masks must be worn inside the clubhouse on matchdays and the Saturday morning breakfast club. Orders for food & drink will be taken from the tables, but orders can also be placed via the outside hatch.  Also, a QR code will be available to scan at the turnstile for the NHS Covid19 App.  The rest of the advice is as before, please social distance inside the ground & waiting at the turnstile, sanitise your hands, pay by contactless terminals & 1 in 1 out system for the toilets.  Our home games are limited to a capacity of 400, which we expect will be enough to cope with usual demand, but if we reach that figure, the turnstiles will have to close.  Full details & our Covid Documents can be viewed here

Fairford Town 1-2 Sholing

Boatmen came through a tough FA Cup tie to progress into the 2nd Qualifying Round. The home side made it difficult for Sholing to find any fluency in an even first half.  Gosney pulled off a great save after the restart, then we took the lead in the 58th minute when the assistant ref spotted that Dan Mason had been pulled down and D-Dan fired in the penalty.  Game remained physical and Gosney had to make further saves, before it looked as though Sholing had made it safe on 81 mins when Nick Watts scored a superb goal.  Wattsie received the ball wide left, cut in and curled a right foot dipping shot from outside the box and under the crossbar.  A rare error by Marv to concede a penalty in the 91st minute, saw Fairford score and the Boatmen had 5 more tense minutes to endure, before we could finally look forward to the next round - Match Report & Videos

Evesham United 0-3 Sholing

A dominant performance by the Boatmen got us off to the best possible start to the League Season with a big win on the road at Evesham.  Sholing looked like we would score every time we attacked in a first half that saw all the goals. On 22 mins, Green's shot was blocked, but fell nicely to Claudio Herbert to stroke home his first goal for the club. 3 minutes later we doubled our lead when Dan Mason slotted home after winning the ball. After D-Dan had a goal chalked off for a questionable offside, we scored a minute later on 38 mins when a ball over the top was latched onto by Stu Green and he lifted a delightful first time lob over the stranded keeper.  Second half, Sholing continue to control things, but the home side sensed a way back in when awarded a penalty on 62 mins... but it was well saved by Ryan Gosney. Roundell & Watts went close before we should have had a pen ourselves when Dan Mason was tripped.  Great way to start the season & rewards for a impressive all round display by the team - Match Report & Video Highlights
